Acadia Reads encourages the Acadia community to share their love of books by reading the selected book and participating in programming (in 2017-18) surrounding the book.
How do we decide whose story to tell? The Campus Community votes for the book that Acadia Reads from a short-list of five titles below. The closing date for voting is April 20th at midnight. Students can enter a prize-draw and win a prize both for the book of their choice from our short-list and an Amazon gift card of $50.00
